U16 Girls Hit Cloud Nine


In our 1st outing of the U16 Rail Cup we were away to Peamount 15s on a fresh morning and our girls were buzzing right from the start.   Our midfield right from 1st min was in control as Jess , Roisin Alix & Nadine shutdown Peamount playmakers and giving us the drive going forward through superb passing and link play to Emma and Alannah up front.

On 8mins the girls play was rewarded as Nadine & Roisin combined to put in Alannah to fire home 0-1 and 2mins later Aimee & Roisin combined to put Alannah in to slip a neat finish for 0-2 . But on 20mins we were treated to a cracker as Alannah slipped in ball to Emma who then passed back to Alannah outside their box and she blasted a rocket into top corner 0-3.  On 24mins  girls were on the move again as girls combined to slip Izzy in she fires a shot in and its saved but as it comes to Alannah with her back to goal she back heels the ball to net for 0-4 .

Then 9mins later Jess sent a peach of cross out to Izzy who went on a mazey run to crack a fine shot in for 0-5 , more of the same for rest of the 1st half but no more goals as 1st half ends .

Lots of changes by both teams but our girls are still in the groove as Jess fires home from a long range shot 0-6 .  9mins later Alix slips in Izzy to fire home for 0-7 and 10 mins after Alannah turns provider to slip in Aimee to fire home for 0-8 , as we entered the final 10mins our final goal was superb as Emma , Aimee & Alannah linked up to feed Alix to fire a cracker for 0-9 . Our well marshalled defense and midfield set us up for this performance but our forward play was scintillating throughout game
